Having problems writing your paper? The Writing Center offers individual appointments with a writing consultant. Writing Center Consultants will give honest feedback about where the writing confuses them, or loses them, particularly interests them, leaves them needing additional explanation or support, and the like. They can help writers to organize their arguments more effectively by asking them, for example, what the organizing principle at work in the current draft is.

The American Psychology Association (APA) style is designed for the social & life sciences (e.g. psychology, anthropology, medicine). These examples are adapted from the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. The print edition is located in the citation manual collection by the reference desk (Call number: Ref BF 76.7.P83 2010, p193-244).
You will need to cite your sources in two places within your paper: in-text and bibliography
Part I outlines how to cite a source in the paragraph where you have quoted, summarized, or paraphrased from the source (called an in-text citation)
Part II outlines how to create an list of references, known as a bibliography, at the end of your paper that lists anything you cite.
For more examples, use Purdue's APA Style Guide resource: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/02/
You must cite the source of either a quotation or paraphrased material, regardless of the type of source: book, magazine or journal article, newspapers, etc. The APA uses the author-date method of citation; that is, the last name of the author and the year of publication are inserted in the text at the appropriate point.

Citing a work by two authors:
Citing a work by three, four, or five authors:
[FIRST CITATION] Jones, Brown, Williams, and Smith (1991) found, in a recent study...
Citing a work by six or more authors

Note: The second and subsequent lines of a citation should be indented five spaces.
